Let’s brighten up this gloomy week with some delicious ice cream. My Favorite flavor right now is Honey-Lavender. The best one I found at Jeni’s in Calabasas, it is sooo good. I always loved ice cream and sometimes I skip lunch or dinner and have just ice cream instead… the BEST!

I found a recipe for my favorite flavor this summer. Independence Day is coming up soon and this would make the perfect desert for family and friends.

Here is what you need (makes 6 – 8 scoops)

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups whole or 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons dried culinary lavender

Add the heavy cream, milk, honey and lavender to a medium saucepan set over medium heat. Bring the mixture to steaming. Stir occasionally.

Check to see that the honey is completely dissolved into the cream and then remove the pan from the heat. Allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Using a ​fine-mesh sieve, strain the lavender cream and discard the solids. Chill the mixture for 1 hour and then freeze it in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Voila – that’s it. So easy and sooo good! Let me know how it turned out!

Happy Monday!

It is a new week and it is a new chance in life to make it a great one. My week is packed with productivity plus a trip to Texas tomorrow.

Here are a few things I do to feel ready for the week:

  1. I get up early to have time for myself before I head out of the door. I have a good breakfast, check my emails, write down my to do-lists.
  2. I Prioritize my to do list. Some things will have to wait.
  3. I take care of my body, I love to do yoga, even if it is just a short sequence. I connect with my mind and body.
  4. I try to take one day at the time. I keep my goals in mind and try to focus on what I can do today.
  5. I always remember to be grateful for how far I come while setting new goals.

I hope you all have a wonderful day and a productive week ahead. What is your secret to a great Monday? I would love to hear.
